Mum’s The Word for Lingotot in Shropshire

Mum’s the Word for Shropshire businesswoman Davina Hamilton whose Lingotot business is set to star in ITV’s eagerly anticipated Sam Faiers; The Mummy Diaries.

The six week series, which follows the day to day life of the reality TV star as she finds her feet as a mother to baby Paul, will feature a Spanish Lingotot class inside the young mum’s home.

Lingotot is a national company which provides children’s language classes for pre-school and primary school aged children across the country, was invited to help introduce the Spanish language to her nine month old son.

Sam, 25 who herself lived her early years in Spain and once spoke the language fluently, is keen that her young son is exposed to a second language from a very early age and called upon the Lingotot team to help.  

An hour-long session was filmed for the camera and based on a typical pre-school community class the class was filled with songs and actions, bringing huge smiles of delight to the faces of both baby Paul’s and the former TOWIE star.

But far from performing only for the camera, Sam has been keen to continue the classes and Lingotot has returned to her home to deliver additional support.

Davina, owner of the Lingotot business in Shropshire, which runs classes in Shrewsbury and Telford, said: “It is never too soon to start and teach a child a foreign language.  

“Between birth and five years of age, the human brain is hard-wired for learning multiple languages.  After age five, this critical window begins to close and it gets much harder to acquire a new language and a good accent.

“Babies’ and young children’s brains are like sponges and people are always amazed by what they take in.  Often some of the first words of the young babies who come to our classes are in Spanish or French and are used in context.

“We are delighted that such a high profile celebrity such as Sam Faiers has taken to Lingotot and hope that seeing baby Paul so engaged in the class and witnessing the joy it brings to him and his mum will help to shine a spotlight on the huge benefits and enjoyment to be found in exposing young babies to foreign languages.”

The six week series is being shown on ITV Be on Wednesday evenings from October 12.  The episode is scheduled to appear on Wednesday October 19.
